[ laughter ] >> president obama is declaring major disasters today in new jersey and new york, he has also declared emergency conditions in both virginia and west virginia. sandy is now called a post tropical cyclone. firefighters are also having to go in and use a boat to rescue dozens of people. about 6 million people are without power including a large section of manhattan. we don't think about these little things -- >> elevateorelevators. >> exactly. west virginia pummelled by snow which we'll talk more about. also seeing snowfall in pennsylvania, virginia and north carolina. now mitt romney is back pedalling saying he could not get rid of fema which is a direct contradiction to what he said during the primary debates. more than 15 hurricane sandy staff for fema are positioned along the east coast. th
will inspect the disaster scene along with governor chris christie, a top romney supporter. dan lothian is live in washington. good morning, dan. what is the president's message right now to storm victims? >> reporter: well, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on television. at the same time
coordinating with us. it's been wonderful. >> so could chris christie's kind words, it's been wonderful for the other side do anything to tip this balance in a tight race? a senior spokesman for hillary clinton, and john avalon, a columnist at "newsweek" at election express. thanks to all of you. let me start with you, john. some of the latest polls included in the poll of polls. we take the major ones and do an average. you look petition pew research center. 48-48, and they continue along that vain. with numbers like that, john, could a small thing like chris christie coming out with a very serious and significant entorsment of the president's handling of the storm tip the race? >> listen, erin. a race like this, this tight, every thing matters. this is a game of inches right now. this is a war of attrition. and we're seeing this in ohio here. both campaigns focusing heavily on ground game. so every little thing matters. and what if highly respected governor, chris christie in a time of crisis has kind words to say, being honest, saying it's been good to working with the president, tha
straight out of new jersey whose governor chris christie kicked crazy ass during the storm. he's been one of mitt romney's most outspoken allies throughout the president's campaign. this is him 12 days ago. >> the president doesn't know how to lead. he's like a man wandering around in a dark room hands up against the wall clutching for the light switch of leadership and he just can't find it and he won't find it until the next 18 days! >> jon: obama couldn't find a stack of old newspapers in an episode of "hoarders" i'm telling you. this guy couldn't find a container at the container store, i'm telling you. obama couldn't lead a bunch of eels to the sargasso sea-- their natural spawning grounds. (laughter) so, you know, look it up. but that was, of course, when america was still living in a pre9 '11 storm surge mentality. >> i want to thank the president personally for his personal attention to this he accelerated the major disaster declaration for new jersey without the usual red tape. the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. the president has been al
twitter accounts @robmarcianocnn. he's awesome. governor christie says no washing cars, no watering lawns. in hoboken, right across the river from new york city, the lower part of the city, workers have managed to drain those filthy floodwaters. they thought maybe they were filled with sewage and bacteria and gasoline. this had been keeping almost half of the city's residents trapped inside their homes. let's get right to bob van dillen. the national guard is there, right, bob? they're helping with rescues and helping with supplies too. >> reporter: indeed, soledad. good morning to you. a different story flrthis morni from yesterday. the national guard is still here, but yesterday morning, everybody were in their trucks. the trucks are still here, but they're not idling and i haven't seen a single national guard troop and all the roads dry. the evacuations, they have essentially ceased. that's the good news. but the bad news is the power is still out and people obviously are getting a little bit cold. temperatures right now down into the 40s. yesterday morning, this was also a staging are
presidential. you had him up there with his bomber jacket in air force one. >> and chris christie of endorsed hip. -- hymn. >> -- endorsed him. >> we talk about crunching the numbers. john is exactly right that in our own polling and in the other national polls, it is a point one way or the other. 48, 49, whatever. very, very close. but you look at those battleground states and there has not been a poll out of ohio in months that has shown mitt romney ahead. >> yeah. >> and so that's where -- that's why these guys are spending so much time in ohio, wisconsin, and iowa. that's where this election will be decided. gwen: john: >> mitt romney will not be president unless he outperforms the polls if the polls are not capturing the intensity behind mitt romney's superintendent porers or in some way they're exaggerating president obama's support -- gwen: where is the intensity right now? is it with the republicans or the democrats? >> we have it equal. in our polls they're equally inspired. that's exactly right. >> republicans think they have an advantage. >> it's dispor portion -- disproportion nat
christie, what are they saying in terms of the possible worst case scenario. what should you guys be bracing for. >>? the worst case scenario here to be intense flooding and that would be farther inland in the norfolk area and they're just worried about roads washing out and what it might do to people's homes. and the power outage issue and up in the east coast, might not have power-- [inaudible] >> okay, that was jennifer davis. here is a shocking number. 61,194, what the senate budget committee says federal and local governments spend on welfare for every household in poverty on average. $61,000. company, and it's one of the major issues in the election, in a country where 9 million people dropped out of the work force, almost 50 million people are on food stamps, the idea that welfare costs $61,000, that's amazing number. >> it's one household and you look at that and say can you imagine? look, you listed off the different statistics out there. this is the biggest reason why, i think, the president had a hard time convincing voters he's turned this economy around. i mean, pove
that is along the coast that we are watching and seeing. destruction that governor chris christy has now called overwhelming. brian morowski is joining us on the phone from new jersey, and, brian, i understand that you actually road your bike to the boardwalk after the storm just to see what kind of damage was there. can you describe for me what you saw? >> yeah. it was like a war zone. it was unbelievable. i mean, just buildings crushed. the board walk completely gone. very sad. people's belongings everywhere. not fun, man. not fun to see. >> brian,s somebody who is a part of this community, i can't imagine really what the emotions are that you are experiencing. can you talk a little bit about your conversations that you have with your family and your friends, some of the emotions that go through when you look at the day after and then the day after and realize this isn't really going to change any time soon? >> you know, you sit there and you think to yourself, you know, i'm glad i'm around my family, and my family is safe, and there are other people that aren't, you know, and you just -- you

the damage today with governor christie, and coming in this morning, i heard -- i was listening to the radio and i heard a bunch of sounds from christie. >> he had gone to the shore yesterday. >> giving people hugs. the boardwalk is gone in a lot of places. we showed some amusement rides. kayla has spent two days in cape may. she's moved north to atlantic city where the damage is also extensive. hey, kayla. >> hey, joe. the president is scheduled to visit atlantic city here alongside governor christie. we'll be taking that live as it occurs. the brunt of the storm was born by the jersey shore. the entire state of new jersey still reeling. two million residents without power. and governor christie calling the damage incalculable. that's the job of officials as they start figuring out how to start repairing the damage that has occurred. some experts around the industry have tried to start putting a number on this. a disaster modelling agency forecast losses between ten and 20 billion dollars. a former economist with the international trade commission scored that much higher with losses up to $
people help them push their cars up. so governor christie what he's doing over there, he's going to ration or he has started rationing fuel. starting at 12:00. just a few minutes ago. if you have an odd-numbered lie license plate you can only get gas on an odd-numbered day. even-numbered license plate you can only get gas on an even-numbered day. >> hear hear for mass transit if you're able to use that. katie, thank you so much for that live report. >>> what's behind some widely divergent predictions for who's going to win the election? that will be next. and nbc news's tom brokaw and how this election compares to others. and how some elections turned on a dime the weekend before election. "weekends with alex witt" continues after this. no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! not so much. but that's okay. you're covered with great ideas like optional better car replacement from liberty mutual insurance. total your car, and we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. learn about it at libert
there for you, night and day. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >>> christie and obama, perfect together to paraphrase the old motto. the president did tour today with the republican governor and governor christie, who has been a key romney supporter, he said what he thought was true. he said that the president has done a good job on the storm. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> babe buchanon is a senior adviser to the romney campaign. so first of all, let's start with the comment. do you think the president has done a good job? >> on the storm? i don't think anybody would know getter than governor christie. >> is it hard to see a key romney surrogate heaping praise on the president? he's one of the main guys fighting for romney. >> what i think you're seeing here is republicans have a tendency to be honest if they're doing a good job and honest if they're not. governor romney made a very strong case against barack obama, his failed policies and how it's done enormous amount of damage to americans a
probably heard the spat going on between new jersey governor chris christie and the mayor of atlantic city. the governor says the mayor didn't do enough to get people to take it seriously about leaving. the bottom line is that the water is all gone. this is where i was standing yesterday. this was waist deep at one point. the water has receded. still a lot of flooding. and we are seeing a number of coast guard overflies that started again at first light this morning around 7:00 am. and they're doing an evaluation of whether or not there need to be rescues. we've not heard of active search and rescues. they are evaluating flooding, seeing who needs help. that's the boredwalk behind me, about three-quarters of a mile down. you can see those red lights. mostly just emergency vehicles around town. no serious damage. there are power outages here in atlantic city, carol. >> i'm sure. ali velshi reporting live from atlantic city, new jersey. >>> we've been telling you all morning long about a breach in a levee in new jersey that has flooded at least four towns. the floodwaters are very deep right
and chris christie -- >> chris christie hasn't endorsed him. >> the fact is, he said he endorsed his role -- >> his leadership. >> his leadership, and i think that was very critical. it did raise the whole issue of, what is the role of government? and i think a lot of people stood back and watched some of the destruction there, i think the affects of sandy are going to be talked about for a long time on this presidential race, coming where they did when romney has had some momentum going into it. we'll see if he does coming out of it. >> >> belva: i have to return to odette here. we talked about polls. where are issues that these groups of any of the grouches -- . >> looking beyond the numbers, they were able to glean direct insight from journalists in a weekly election series that we did and really the pulse points that were really critical. latino voters feel the crux of democracy means to them was being taken away. some significant shift that we saw, with filipinos, not the field poll, but an naa survey was released also recently, and it showed for the first time a really significant s
: one. things that governor christie was saying in the press conference, he's out in a helicopter and he can't land anywhere. when is it possible, we need rescue crews. >> like i said, you're not going to recognize the jersey shore from atlantic city northward and i went out with that on friday and i still-- all i'm saying is look, the storm angle, where it hit, the amount of the large amount of 75 to 95 mile per hour winds rather than focused fury like charlie and andrew, contributed to this, piled it back in and takes a while for the water to go out. the reason why i said it's still a problem today because that water, that wind instead of turning to the west and blowing it back out again like in delaware bay, believe it or not, the tide started dropping. you see how rehoboth beach is, they didn't have a bigger problem-- >> we'll talk to you more throughout the afternoon. thank you very much. >> my pleasure. cheryl: 15,000 flights grounded by the storms and airports are closed, they've got flooded runway. and disaster modeling fr, he's coming up next, and let's take a look at one of the

-in-chief. governor christie wears that fleece that says chris christie, governor. do they need that? >> reporter: is there anybody that don't know chris christie is the governor? megyn: or obama is the president? >> reporter: you should get one that says anchor. megyn: they will say who cares. when the president speaks later today we are told he will use a moderate positive message in these final five days. taking a kinder, jernlter approach you might say. but with such a short amount of time is this too little too late for a campaign that's been criticized for its harsh attacks on governor romney? now to the aftermath of the monster storm that left millions in damage behind. mayor bloomberg says new york city homes to have power completely restored in 10 days and they are hoping to have water pulled out of the flooded subway tunnels. but there are questions about what was in those tunnels before water washed in. we are talking about millions of rats. >> reporter: normally the flooding drives the rats out of the tunnels onto the streets. the fear is you have these rats roaming over the streets o
. we don't have the supply coming in. governor chris christie gave authorization for the gas stations to buy that supply from out of state. it's not usually done to alleviate the problem. it's going to take time. we were running out of gas as well. we were going to shoot gas stations with a long line, by the time we found one, we were out of gas as well. tempers were flaring. take a look and listen to how people were dealing with it. >> i have to make three trips to this gas station. >> a little tank, you have to fill it up three times. just to get home. it still might not make it. >> any other gas stations with gas? >> no other gas stations with gas. >> i'm broke down. i'm stranded. i can't get home. no gas. >> reporter: this affects everybody from delivery cabs to people delivering food to people wanting to get home. i don't think the problem is going to be alleviated anymore soon. you mentioned mta, there are a few trains back online. commuter railroads as well. southern manhattan, it's still dark around me. the best way of action, either because it's forced upon you or because you
aftermath of super storm sandy. governor chris christie ordering gas rationing. drivers in 12 northern new jersey counties can only buy gasoline on odd or even days. governor christie is hoping the rationing will ease the long lines, preventing a fuel shortage or a bigger one. >>> in new york, governor andrew cuomo announcing free emergency mobile fuel stations are opening around the new york city metro area for victims of super storm sandy. >> heather: and just a few miles outside of manhattan in hoboken, new jersey, those people still have no power and food trucks are offering a free meals, though, to people there. the storm surge from the hudson river caused nearly every street in the city to look like this, to flood. and though the water had gone down somewhat, the clean-up will take some time. >> our street is so disgustingly polluted. it's disgusting. it's like sewage came up. >> you breathe it and coughing and turning and sometime i think i be taking my last breath. >> heather: that resident from staten island. there, the number of those who died, continues to rise and patience is w
in the garden state all over again. new jersey governor chris christie ordering odd-even rationing to ease the incredibly long lines. and odd numbers on the license plates, odd days and even numbers on the plates, in some 12 counties and governor mitt romney wrapping up an event in new hampshire and governor gin cal travelling with him. we'll talk to him in a few moments. back to staten island and the storm after the storm. those escaping death now pleading with city officials for food, water, and any help they can get. to anna kooiman on staten island now, anna? >> all right, well, good morning to you, neil. yeah, you mentioned over 169 deaths at least caused by hurricane sandy and 22 of those right here on staten island at least. and as police are saying, those numbers could be going up, as they continue to uncover debris and potentially find more bodies. we're about 300 yards from the ocean or from the water here and i can tell you that there's pretty much not a home in this neighborhood that has not been completely destroyed by hurricane sandy. and residents are hoping for food and for
that new jersey governor chris christie has signed an executive order implementing odd/even rationing for gas purchases in 12 new jersey counties. odd numbered and even numbered license plates on alternating days. the human toll, meantime, it is growing. at least 22 people have now lost their lives here. the least populated of new york's five boroughs and the highest death toll. for staten islanders, especially, the idea of a global sports and media spectacle being held on their shattered doorstep, it was infuriating and understandably so. today, new york mayor michael bloomberg who had been pushing for the race backed down, saying the marathon had become a course of controversy and division. the thousands of runners from around the world are already here. minutes after the decision we sent our producers to central park to get reactions from runners. some were surprised to get the news. >> you are sure? >> reporter: i'm sure. >> oh, my god. >> we are from germany. we prepared for over a year for this run. that is bad, totally bad. >> what can we do? keep on running. >> we will come ba
